Novel: I'm not surprised Leckie won (it's shaping up to be the Year of Ancillary Justice) though I'm surprised that the (admittedly entertaining) Powell got picked over the superior Priest.

Short fiction: I still haven't read Spin...

Artwork: I liked the Metropolis poster but this was a close second-favorite.

Non-fiction: Well, it was huge and lavish.
